Spring Allergy Clearing Recipe: Garlic Ginger Soup

Huge news!!! I have moved to North Carolina and love it!! I have a wonderful boyfriend in the area, as well as his amazing family. There are awesome UNBELIEVABLE running trails. I have truly enjoyed moving to a new state and making some new friends. I have found some of my “go to” ingrediants, checked out the local farmers market today, and most importantly joined the local running group. Worse part of the move: POLLEN!!! While the netti pot works wonders, so does a nice warm soup!

I have tested a great low budget recipe in order to clear those sinuses and feel amazing….introducing
